Romney Once said Mike Huckabee would Make a Fine President

I have to thank this article I found in Amerisreal. According to The Morning News of North West Arkansas Mitt Romney said this about Mike Huckabee;

  • While at the Arkansas Governor's Mansion in 2005 for a meeting about health care, Romney demurred when asked whether a presidential race was in his future but had nice things to say about his host.
  • "Who knows what the future will hold?" Romney said in 2005. "Most likely, we'll all stay as governors or find other offices, but we need to make sure that we have a strong person who can take the baton from President Bush, and Governor Huckabee is certainly one of those individuals. He'd make a fine president."
A few other things I found in this article from The Morning News;
  • Another Web site that trades on political futures this week added Mike Huckabee to its list of presidential candidates for whom users can obtain "stock."
  • The Iowa Electronic Markets site added Huckabee on Wednesday.
This article was originally published on Dec. 8.

  • A commemorative silver dollar that marks the 50th anniversary of the Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis goes off sale Friday.
  • The coin depicts the high school as it looked on Sept. 25, 1957, when President Eisenhower ordered federal troops to Little Rock to ensure court-ordered integration of the school.
  • The nine black students who first attended Central were at the school for a 50th anniversary ceremony earlier this year.
  • The coin is available until Friday at or by calling (800) 872-6468.
  • A "proof" coin, which is 90 percent silver, sells for $39. A version of the coin made of mixed metals is $35.
